Default Help Beginner prepare before getting Fire Bellied Newts.

So basically, I have 2 empty 55 Litre Tanks that I am wanting to set up for Fire Bellied Newts and run them off of 1 filter which is a Sunsun 304b uv canister filter.

For my set ups I was thinking on making Half Land, Half Water style tanks, but that seems a bit simple and I so would like to try to make a simple Paludarium with plants/moss growing off a wall with shelves that act as the Land Mass, much like the video at the end of this post.

I have read up on the care sheets of Newts but I am unsure whether to get Japanese or Chinese, it will probably just be what I can find available as they are pretty scarce in my country.

Also, I would like to begin breeding them in the future but this is a bit out of scope for me at the moment, just thought I would note that down.

Any ideas and criticism is greatly appreciated!
